Eggleston

Brentwood native and rising national volleyball star Logan Eggleston will once again play among the best young volleyball players in the country with USA Volleyball.

The U.S. Women’s Junior National Team announced its 2019 roster, with the former Lady Bruin on the list with 11 other athletes. She was part of the 2018 team as well.

They’ll participate in the 2019 FIVB Women’s U20 World Championship from July 12 through 21 in Léon Guanajuato & Aguascalientes, Mexico.

She’ll be coached by her college coach at Texas, Jerritt Elliott.

“Our staff has been very busy since camp started July 5,” Elliott said in a release. “We started out with 19 players and had to select our final 12 by July 8. From the moment the girls came together their personalities clicked and became a committed group very fast. Our staff has really enjoyed this talented group’s personalities.”

They’ll start with a match against Italy Friday before playing Mexico and Cuba in the days to follow.

“I know all of us are excited to represent USA against the best teams in the world,” Elliott said. “This is this age group’s Olympic Games and I’m confident this group will compete and represent our country with pride. We have had very little time to train but are excited to build over the next two weeks and gel as a team.”

More information on the tournament and insight into the general team can be found on Team USA’s website.
